Earlier, as reported by Indian News Agency, ANI, Pakistan continues to discriminate against minorities in the Islamic Republic. The country’s Hindus and Christian minorities are not being given food supplies by authorities, saying they are meant for the Muslims, reports the ANI.
Thousand of people gathered at Karachi’s Rehrri Ghoth to receive assistance including ration and other daily essentials. However, people belonging to the Hindu community were told to go back since the rations were only meant for Muslims – a person stated.
Hindus in Pakistan form a mere 1.6% of the country’s population. The minority Hindu community is subjected to widespread discrimination and are often denied basic human rights. Under international pressure and global outcry over the condition of the minorities in Pakistan, Islamabad last year decided to restore over 400 Hindu temples, reports the ANI.
